In conjunction with Ralph’s post below, here’s an unboxing video about the Meerkat (including opening the chassis to view mobo, ram, etc.
I put the Meerkat by System76 on my Christmas wish list this year. And got it! Once I plugged it in I haven’t gone back to my windows machine. It’s been wonderful and also a challenge. I found that I could not get drivers for my old Canon printer. So after research got a new HP 6978 that was on sale. It is wireless. And I couldn’t get all the features to work. So I plugged in my old printer cable and copy/scan / double side printing and scanning worked. My next challenge is to access the data on my windows drive. and to see if my exact program will work in wine.
I am planning to bring it Saturday.
I forgot to say that the printer keeps track of the ink and ships more to you when it gets down to one-third.
Certain printer models (typically, Canon & Brother) can be harder to install in Linux. So, another solution is TurboPrint . . a software development company located in Irsee Germany.
Will this appeal to the masses? . . . .
